If you own a home and there are people outside shooting at you, what do you do?
You could defend yourself if you are able.
You could ask them to stop.
You could open the door and invite them in and see if they will stop shooting.
You can run away and abandon your home.
Stop and think for a moment. Which one are you going to pick?
These are the options Israel has right now.
In 1947, Israel was re-established as a legitimate country and the Jewish nation were given a home. Not everyone in the area liked this and this is the source for the conflict that has been occurring ever since. If we really want to go to the root of the conflict, explore the Old Testement and you’ll see the root of this conflict is thousands of years old. I encourage you to do your own investigation of the history, here are a couple of places you can start.
While Israel is a legitimate country, Hamas is not.
Hamas is at its best a political party or movement. At its worst it is a terror organization.
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”
News reports have stated how the Israeli deaths in the current battle is tiny compared to their enemies. But again I must point out the differences.
Israel has an organized military and defense system. They usually wear uniforms. There is a distinction between the civilians and the military, like we have in the United States.
Hamas, does not have this distinction because they are acting as a terror organization with the goal of killing all the Jews in the name of a religious mission.
Want proof? Take a look at this website which is attempting to provide information that our mainstream media is skimming over or ignoring.
Instead we are being asked to have a heart for those who are “breaking into our homes”.
I urge you to look at the big picture, all the propaganda coming from all sides of every issue including this one before blindly agreeing to support anything you hear or read.
